DUNCAN Myrna Elaine (Biggs) Duncan, 64, born in Ft. Collins, Colo. on May 21, 1944 to the late Emil and Leona Biggs departed this life in the presence of her family at home on March 17, 2009. Preceded in death by her precious son Allen Roger Duncan in March 2008. Survived by her loving and faithful husband for more than 41 years, Steve; and her daughter and son-in-law, Jane and Jim Nesbit of Bellbrook, Oh.; brother and sister-in-law, Reggie and Betty Biggs of Wyoming, Ia.; daughter-in-law, Wanda Duncan of Columbia, Md.; step-father, Ralph Sharpley of Denver, Colo.; and three wonderful grandchildren, Connor Duncan, Aerlia and C.J. Nesbit; as well as a host of family and friends. Myrna went to Denver Junior Academy and graduated from Campion Academy (Colorado) in 1962. She attended Columbia Union College (Maryland) and graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration in May 1967. While in college she worked in the kitchen of Washington Sanitarium Hospital and met Steven Lee Duncan whom she married on July 16, 1967. Their son, Allen Roger was born in May 1968 and their daughter, Jane Marie in August 1973. In addition to being a wife, a mom and full-time worker she was an active member of Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church in Takoma Park, Md. volunteering with the nursery Sabbath school and the hospitality dinners. She also volunteered at the Adventist Community Service Center and at Sligo Adventist School where both of her children attended. Myrna worked as a bookkeeper for Berwyn Fuel in Laurel, Md. for more than 25 years until her husband's job brought them to Columbus, Oh. in 1993. She worked in accounts receivable for the Scioto County Club up until February this year. She loved the wonderful people she worked with at both places and they loved her. She volunteered selflessly at Worthington Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the nursery Sabbath school, as a hospitality dinner leader, board and finance committee member, deaconess, and in her community feeding the homeless downtown. Her delightful helpfulness and love to all people she met was a reflection of God's loving character and service. We look forward to meeting with her again in our new home in Heaven. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Worthington Seventh-Day Adventist School Building Fund or Street Beat (the feeding of the homeless). A viewing will be held at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 N. High Street on Monday, March 23 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. The funeral service will be held at WORTHINGTON SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH, 385 E.
